DURR, Irene Christine Irene Christine Durr nee Wassinger passed away on September 16, 2016 in Chicago, Illinois. Irene was born in Topeka, Kansas, the daughter of Andrew and Anna Wassinger and was the ninth of their ten children. The family moved to Chicago in her early years where she grew up and married William A. Durr, Sr. They resided in Chicago for many years, raising three sons: William Jr., Thomas, and Patrick. After retiring from Seeburg Corporation she moved to Colorado Springs. She also resided in Port Angeles, Washington, Mesa, Arizona and Bedford, Texas before returning to Chicago a year before her passing. She loved infants for their innocence and was enthusiastic about Halloween. Every year she would plan and create a costume elaborate enough that friends and relatives often could not identify her. Among many memorable costumes she appeared as a pregnant bride at her retirement community's party and also as Lady Gaga. She is survived by her three sons, six grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She will be missed and fondly remembered and will be costumed as an angel this Halloween.
